Ploye Festival
  in Fort Kent

Ployes are still very popular in northern Maine and many people navigate to Fort Kent in August to celebrate this French Acadian food at the annual Ploye Festival.  It is held in conjunction with the Fort Kent International Muskie Derby when fishing enthusiasts strive to catch one of the large freshwater muskies for prizes.

A gigantic ploye (twelve feet in diameter) is made and covered in butter and enjoyed by hundreds of onlookers at the Ploye Festival.  Fort Kent is apparently into doing things in a big way.  They hold the title to the “World’s Largest Ploye.” 

Other events that are scheduled in Fort Kent at this time include a ploye eating contest, ploye wrestling contest, and craft show.
